situation. however, i want to look why the market is not taking off. i'm wondering how many of these are temporary jobs, part-time jobs, because it seems like those kind of jobs don't move the needle with respect to the economy. >> last time around a month ago we found there was over 800,000 people said they had found work, but it was over 600,000 who were part-timers. that's not very well paid work. this time around, we've got 600,000 saying we found some kind of work, but we don't know how many were part-timers. that's the key to this thing. i would expect president obama to spin this positively. we are creating jobs. we're moving in the right direction. i think governor romney will say, we're not going fast enough. >> the question is, is america living up to its potential? yeah, we're moving in the right direction, but certainly not at our potential. again, we should be 250, 300,000 jobs at this point in a post-recession recovery in the united states. >> okay. let's repeat, the unemployment rate went up to 7.9%.
